New Member Experience
The Zeta Is Forever New Member Experience emphasizes the values of the Fraternity, found in our Creed. The weekly lessons are: Seek Greatness, Seek Understanding, Seek Purpose, Seek Sisterhood and Seek the Noblest.
Prior to the weekly meeting, new members complete an online educational workshop regarding that week’s topic. These online workshops allow for fewer lectures and more discussion and engagement with other new members during meetings, building overall sisterhood and a connection to the Fraternity. The meetings include icebreakers, a review of the online module, interactive activities and a personal reflection.
All first-year Zetas participate in the New Member Experience, CommunityEdu, Initiation and two post-Initiation lessons (Seek Meaning and Seek Commitment) during the same semester as when they join the chapter.
Some words from one of our newest members:
"My new member experience was quite different than most due to COVID-19. Although the recruitment process and most of the new member events were online, I never felt disconnected! Even from my first conversation with Zeta during recruitment, I felt connected and at home. My big went above and beyond to make me feel special and loved. Whenever we are together it's always constant laughter, love, and adventure! There are really no words to explain the bond I have with my sisters. The memories I have made with these women are ones I will cherish for the rest of my life! Joining ZTA has been the best decision I have ever made. I know I will have these ladies by my side for the rest of my life.
